"Hoot in the house"

new work emerging post open studio weekend... 

this is a sneak peek from a new 10 x 10 collage piece that will be available at january's first friday event at art and light gallery. i love using the baroque artist panels for my collage process.  the more layers the better(my motto)...finally, a surface made for the way i work.  the bad news... they seem very hard to find right now.  on back order everywhere. (why does this always seem to happen??)

i used some metallic stitched paper on this guy to represent his rough skin along with some clippings from a vintage book.  also in the works are a rabbit and turtle both which will be available at the january show.   

these collage pieces are great for collecting and arranging in a group.  LOVE repeated patterns/shapes/sizes...(no, i'm not sure why). there are still a few 8 x 8 and a couple of 12 x 12 available for purchase on my website if you want to start your collection before january!  (it is cyber monday after all...happy shopping!!)
